Riflessione compositiva di assemblaggi possibili

by Tiziano Milani



While in previous works the research of the relationship between space and sound took place in real environments — where the sounds were put in a room to analyse the acoustic properties of walls and objects — this time Tiziano Milani wanted to play a game, grounding his stand on an architectonic project yet to be realized, existing only on paper.

In brief:
1. Identifications of an architectural design and evaluations of a room

2. Choice of the sounds that have to interact with the space inside the room

3. Use of the room characteristics to develop the sounds, digital manipulations (reverb and other effects)

4. Composition of the workpiece on the basis of the developments of the project plant.

The linguistic musical tissue of this sound work is characterized by timbric, rhythmic and formal elements tending to an expansion and cohesion of the sound framework. In this work, the external sounds and noises, usually excluded from the musical enjoyment context, are recovered and integrated in the work to give the starting point material for the construction of the composition.

The title (English: “Compositional thoughts on possible assemblies”) evokes the figure of the two-faced mythical divinity, represented by the biparted division of the sound track. There are lots of strident moments and savage rhythmic movements into these sounds, even if one can be found moments of great quietness due to the resonant textures. The second part is completely realised by employing the ascending and descending variations of acoustic instruments, giving an atmosphere of tumultuous turbulence. The presence of asymmetrical elements gives an aleatory sense. What this work tries to find is an indeterminate way to compose.
